Abstract: We exploit some symmetries in Maxwell-Lorentz's equations by completing some vacancies of (independent) scalar field content. To this end, we consider three steps: 1) Maxwell's equations in vacuum constitute a set of eight partial differential equations; six EM field component variables; and the sources have four electric current components. 2) Once magnetic monopoles are included, we study whether this system can include two new EM-like scalar fields so that a full symmetry may be accomplished, i.e., 3) [nS, nF, nD](c) = [8, 8, 8], where nS, nF, nD indicate the number of independent sources, fields, and partial differential equations. After solving some basic problems by following standard procedures, we comment on the various procedures to accomplish second quantization.

Gil-Carrasco, F.",,"2004",,"Purpose: To evaluate the peri-operative, clinical and echographic differences in eyes that developed early choroidal detachment (CD) compared with those that did not had such complication after trabeculectomy. Methods: A cohort of 53 patients affected by uncontrolled glaucoma who underwent primary trabeculectomy was prospectively evaluated. A- and B-scan ultrasonography and a clinical examination were carried out 24 hours before and after surgery. Pre- and post-operative IOP, proportion of IOP reduction, blood pressure, type and number of glaucoma medicines, and surgeon's level of experience were collected variables. Results: From 53 operated eyes, the presence of CD was detected by echographic and/or clinical examination in 15 eyes (28.3%). Mean pre-operative IOP in eyes that developed CD (26.0 8.0 mmHg) was significantly higher (P = 0.011) than in eyes not affected by this condition (21.2 5.3 mmHg). One day after surgery, there was no significant difference (P = 0.390) in the post-operative IOP (5.0 4.6 mmHg vs. 6.0 5.6 mmHg). A proportion of eyes with a net reduction equal or greater than 15 mmHg was significantly higher in the CD group (P = 0.017). Conclusions: Our data supports the fact that early-onset CD after trabeculectomy appears to be more frequent in cases with higher pre-operative IOP and greater proportions of IOP reduction but not necessarily with lower post-operative IOP.",,,,,,,,,"","",,,,,,"2",,"Revista Mexicana de Oftalmologia",,"71

Ciambelli, D.A.",,"2011",,"Background: Venous insufficiency of the lower limbs is one of the most common vascular diseases. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a systemic inflammatory disease that can affect blood vessels and skin. Clinical characteristics of pelvic limb ulcers are unknown in these type of patients. Objective: Our aim was to evaluate the clinical characteristics of the lower limbs venous ulcers in patients with SLE. Methods: In the summer 2010 we included all consecutive patients with SLE and ulcers in lower extremity seen in the Wound Clinic of the Vascular Surgery Department at the INCMNSZ and compared them with subjects with ulcers in lower extremity but without a diagnosis of SLE. We evaluated demographic variables and the clinical characteristics of the ulcers were assessed using AutoCAD 2009 " (Autodesk. USA) to calculate the area (cm2), depth (mm), granulation tissue, fibrin, slough and healing time during follow-up . The statistical analysis was performed using SPSS v.15.0 with Fisher exact test and Mann-Whitney U as appropriate. Outcome: Five patients with SLE and 14 control patients were included, all of them female. SLE patients had lower age (42.4 6.8 vs. 60.21 17.3 years, p = 0.026), shorter duration between first visit and the closure of the ulcer (7.2 8.9 vs. 43.29 37.6 weeks, p < 0.01). There were no differences in initial ulcer area, depth, amount of fibrin and slough between the two groups. Conclusion: In patients with SLE, the lower extremity ulcers occur at younger age and the treatment time to closure is lower. No other difference was found.
